The Deputy President considers this a very serious matter involving a government office and being an issue that has recurred in many such offices wants investigations expedited devoid of political and media propaganda,” Mugonyi said.

Mugonyi admitted that Echesa had taken two foreigners to Harambee Annex, seeking to meet Ruto, but left when they were told he was not in.
